"Throughout history, nations, peoples, and governments have censored writers and their works on political, religious, sexual, and social grounds. Although the literary merit of the majority of these books has been proven time and time again, censorship efforts are still in place today. From Animal Farm to The Grapes of Wrath, The Koran to The Talmud, Ulysses to the Harry Potter series, The Canterbury Tales to The Bell Jar, this revised edition examines the many struggles these books faced in order to be read"-
120 Banned Books: Censorship Histories of World Literature
I think people should be allowed to read whatever they want, as long as they know what they are reading, and are mature enough to handle it. If they are kids or teenagers, if they have their parents consent, that would also be okay. When you choose to read a book, you would have to know what you are reading about, and if you know the content in the book then it is your choice to read it or not. Banning a book will not solve the problem, as people will just keep fighting harder to find and read the book. The Harry Potter Series, that was stated in the quote, is in many libraries and were even made into movies! It's almost impossible to keep people from reading what they want to read!
